    It's Fifield
    It may have been filmed but it was cut :(


    Is it really Fifield though?

    I still think it's Millburn...

    Thanks for realising this. Glad my french is capable enough to read the notes. These little insights highlight the tremendous hours and thought that goes into a project like this in creating a couple of hours entertainment for the rest of us!

    Thanks to everyone who worked so hard on this film. It's much appreciated!

    We so need an extended cut.

    The movie wasn't especially rushed; it just felt that way because there was so much great design to see.

    I wonder whether they consciously didn't cut it as slow as Alien because they knew that those who cared would find this stuff on the Internet or freeze-frame through a blu-ray...

    definitely content was cut. 

    If i remember correctly last summer they went to spain to film some underwater scenes. Just curious what they filmed there, cuz i dont recall any special scene being underwater other than the sacrifice engineer one

    I want to know what that green rock was in front of the long legged Xeno alter.
    Giger you devil. 

    Holloway said something like "it's just a tomb". Also, did you notice that instead of a green crystal there was some kind of cup? Why did they remake that in such way?

    I don't know wtf is going on but I definitely want the hear the true story of the making/editing/marketing of Prometheus someday.

    Green stone = symbol of Envy ? Envy of the Deacon? Envy of mankind?

    I always saw the xeno fingers in the mural, but Dat Egg.....HOLYSHIT!


    Not sure what to make of the green stone. Some biological element held in suspended animation-kind of like insects in amber?

    The green orb to me is holds the pure dna of the xeno. The barbs within the urns that David took out had black goo with green stuff in it.

    Some Emerald lore:

    Emeralds

    The bright green variety of beryl. Emeralds are the gem of spring and
    rebirth, a protection at sea, an antidote to certain poisons. Of course,
    they've also been connected with jealousy, and it's said that some emeralds
    can be used to call on the dark angels and spirits.

    The color green (wadj)
    was the color of vegetation and new life. To do "green things" was slang
    for beneficial, life-producing behavior. As mentioned above, Osiris was
    often portrayed with green skin and was also referred to as "the Great
    Green". Green malachite was a symbol of joy and the land of the blessed
    dead was described as the "field of malachite." In Chapter 77 of the Book
    of the Dead, it is said that the deceased will become a falcon "whose
    wings are of green stone". Highly impractical of course, it is obvious
    that the color of new life and re-birth is what is important. The Eye of Horus amulet was commonly made of green stone as well.

    That's very reminiscent of the vessel the Sacrifice Engineer drinks from in the opening sequence.
    Perfect organism.

    I definitely agree!

    I did like the movie, but seeing so much of this behind-the-scenes stuff makes you wonder how much more it could've been... :(

    So much was cut, so much potential, what a waste eh?

    I'm wondering if the black goo, transforms humans into more superior beings, the ones who fly the saucer shaped craft?

    Probably reaching out on a limb here, but is it possible the engineer kneeled before Weyland, because he thought he was one of the elder engineers? (I.e. the ones who give the sacrafice engineers that black goo to drink)

    So when Weyland says "Talk to him David", he looks up with shock, realising it's not another engineer?

    God knows, hehe

    Wait, does anyone have a decent explanation of this bowl/green stone replacement??

    I may have missed it elsewhere, but there's so many forum posts, it's hard to keep tabs...

    Looks like there's a slight ridge around the bowl, so I'd be willing to guess it's a sacrafice bowl, as seen in the beginning

    Placed in front of the mural, it depicts what happens when you drink from said bowl.

    But why it was replaced with a crystal? who knows.

    So basically you have a single temple, with thousands of vials of this black life creating/destroying liquid

    Each temple is a single engineers lab, his head is created as a monument to his work

    Laid about the place are different experiments which he has created, the final version being in the ship and in that bowl.

    Engineers then go into the temple, take the bowl, board the ship, then fly to an uninhabited planet, drink it and create life on the planet itself.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the first temple is the Xeno temple and each of the others, is for all the other races the engineers have created, so one is probably a human temple.

    Maybe the mural changing, shows how the finished product was created, by using engineers as birthing tools.
